It's A Beautiful Life

I love this photo of my DH and DDs taken earlier this year at Changi Beach. It has such an idyllic look about it somehow, and I found this little die-cut journaling tag taken from MME's Lost & Found's Accessories Sheet just the perfect title for the layout.

Also using papers from MME's Lost & Found collection, I tore and distressed the edges and layered them beneath the photo, and then embellished the layout with laces and twine, and some beautiful flowers and crystals from Zva Creative.

I anchored the layout with chipboard frames from Tattered Angels, to which I had applied some distress ink and crackle paint. I then created mini collages with the frames using the flowers from Zva Creative, as well as some twine which I had inked, and the little die-cut journaling tag and shape from MME for the bottom frame.

And I even decorated the little birdcages on the left of the patterned paper. Aren't they cute? :)

Thanks for dropping by!
